    Are you a developer or systems architect or project manager? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Bill Glover and Himanshu Bhatt, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how to get that first RFID prototype out the door. Glover and Bhatt, begin by defining RFID and introduce some of the fundamental concepts. Then, the authors describe the parts of an RFID system, their relationships to each other, and some of the functional and service-level requirements specific to RFID. Next, the authors describe the tags that attach an identity to an item and communicate that identity to readers. The authors then examine how tags talk to readers. They continue by describing the readers that communicate with tags and connect RFID-tagged items to the network. Then, the authors cover how readers talk to middleware and applications. They then describe the middleware that manages RFID information and edge devices. Next, they examine the storage and use of RFID information. Then, they discuss some of the specific concerns related to managing RFID devices on the edge of the network. Next, the authors discuss real concerns regarding the impact of RFID on security and privacy, as well as dispelling some of the myths. Finally, they continue by providing a look at where RFID may take you in the next few years. This most excellent book allows you to understand the major elements in an RFID system. More importantly, it shows you how to divide work, set goals, and understand vendor proposals.
